On Monday 6th and Tuesday 7th July Friesland School held their inaugural Awards Ceremonies, with over 200 students from years 7 to 10 awarded for outstanding achievement or effort during the course of 2014/15. The Mayor of Erewash, Councillor Val Custance, was on hand to present the certificates and badges to the delighted recipients.
‘These evenings have been a wonderful celebration of everything that is good about secondary education. Our youngsters have worked exceptionally hard all year, both academically and in their contribution to wider school life. Tonight is our opportunity to celebrate that exceptional performance with the students and their parents; it has been wonderful to see the venue full to capacity with proud parents and relatives for all four ceremonies’. Said Peter Monk, Head Teacher.
